hello i have rooted a 5.2.1.0 fire stick with kingo root and now i can not get either mouse toggle or ES file explorer to work properly ,both apps are installed
mouse toggle does not do anything it shows the setting screen , but double tapping play will not activate it

ES file explorer works but will not download anything i tried 2 different tutorials, 2 different links that work fine on my PC and tried to download the .apk through Es file explorer and when i click the links nothing happens, when i try to go to the "more" >"open in browser" option as it said in one the tutorials it just backs me out or the app back to fire tv UI
i tried the "open browser option" with both links the one from the tutorial that said to do it and the one that did not, all it does is back me out to fire TV UI with both
i checked the download folder , storage, emulated storage/0/download and there are in no apk file in there, it just won't download anything

apk files downloaded fine on my PC with same 2 links

can someone with a s tick on 5.2.1.0 rooted with kingo root please confirm if they can get either of these to work properly

Looks like mouse toggle doesn't work anymore but Es, file explorer works fine for me.

I replaced mouse toggle with wukong remote and just use my phone to control the stick. As for es not downloading I had this problem even before root but to get around this I simply add the wanted apk files to my drop box account and install them that way. Much easier

ok so you can confirm mousetoggle not working then?
yes i do not think that will work either one of the link i tried was a dropbox link and it did nothing when i clicked it
i usually just install apk's through adb with cmd prompt i find it is the easiest method for me ,but i saw some other people on ares site talking about how they ould not et kodi arm apk lik to work through ES i just want to know what is going on , is amazon disabling downloads through ES now? i could see if it was just the kodi arm apk link but the links i used for firestopper were from more obscure sites i doubt they have got all those links blacklisted somehow through ES the more likely answer is they just disabled downloads , but who knows

The 1.06 update of the Mouse Toggle for Fire TV app is compatible with the 5.2.1.0 OS update. Simply upgrade the phone app and setup the app on the Fire TV again and verify the status is 'started' and confirm the app updated to 1.06. If you have any issues please send a email to the address in the app and I will help you out.

Note: If the apps 'Status' is stuck on 'starting' then it is very likely another app is unfortunately blocking the single ADB connection. The offending app would need to be uninstalled and 'ADB Debugging' would have to be toggled off and then on again.

Thank you!

I've tried and tested this on the stick and nothing are you running on the stick? Thanks

Yes, the 1.06 version works on all the different Fire TV models including the Fire TV Stick. It is very likely another app is conflicting as there are some apps that take exclusive control of ADB and never properly disconnect unfortunately. If you can email me at the address listed in the app with additional details I'm confident we can get this resolved for you.
Thank you
